Now Then and Elsewhen ✓ Praise for Now Then and ElsewhenIn Nikki Alfar’s wonderful collection Now Then and Elsewhen be prepared to travel Her stories range from the contemporary modern world into the past and far into the future The writing is strong and There are many brilliant pieces in this collection of short stories by Nikki Alfar the wife of Dean Francis Alfar They range from her reminiscences of childhood memories about her long dead grandmother to supernatural or fantasy like seeing a man in diving suit jump into a flooded street in Manila The stories are youngish and would cater well with young adults from middle class families Alfar seems to have been schooled in exclusive schools in Manila as some of her stories here are just like what has already mentioned memoirs of her younger years as student or working professional Some stories though are bewilderingly mind blowing and are testaments of Alfar's boundless imagination that was probably honed by being a writer in or editor of Philippine Speculative Fiction series I liked this book for its brilliant spunky writing I am not really a fan of speculative fiction as I think I am too old for that but I have to give the credit for Alfar's prose clear youngish and engaging I think this is a kind of book that my young friends in our Pinoy Reads Pinoy Books would like What I particularly liked was the first story about her grandmother and Crispa Toyota basketball rivalry in the 70's I felt disconnected about the female gang that Alfar led while in an all girls exclusive high school It felt like Jessica Zafraish and I just could not relate to itMaybe my daughter will like this book though It's just that she is still to discover the joy of reading Maybe someday Text ☆ Now Then and Elsewhen Ñ Nikki Alfar
